Ingredients

PB Filling

Chocolate Coating

  • 2 Tbs coconut oil
  • 1 1/2-2 Tbs cacao see notes
  • 1 Tbs coconut milk
  • 12 drops Sweetleaf vanilla creme stevia or a dash of pure stevia powder, to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of pink salt

Instructions

To make the pb filling:

  • Stir together all ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl. Add just enough coconut flour that your dough holds together. Taste and adjust for sweetness, if needed.
  • Scoop balls onto a parchment lined plate using a small cookie scoop or measuring spoon - 1 tsp to 1 Tbs, depending on how big you like.
  • Optional: roll each ball in your hands to smooth out the surface. Refrigerate or freeze while you prepare the chocolate.

To make the chocolate:

  • Melt coconut oil in a small bowl. (About 30 seconds in the microwave.) Stir in the remaining ingredients. Taste and adjust if needed. *OR use 1 bar of melted dark chocolate + 2 tsp coconut oil.
  • Dip each ball in the bowl of melted chocolate and turn to coat thoroughly. Use a fork to remove from bowl. Set back on parchment.
  • Freeze for about 30 minutes, until chocolate has hardened. Enjoy!

What I used:
Organic Peanut Butter from ALDI which is a very drippy. If yours is more firm, use less flour.
Cacao Powder 
Coconut flour
Sweetener options: you can use monkfruit drops, stevia drops, pure monkfruit extract, powdered monkfruit, powdered coconut sugar, or a small amount of maple syrup or honey. Adjust the flour and sweetener to your preferred texture and taste.
To make these Paleo, simply use almond butter instead! Works great. I love to add some almond extract, too. YUM!
To use mini wrappers instead, add 1/2 tsp to each wrapper and tilt the pan to coat the bottom and sides. Place a 1/2 Tbs pb ball inside and pour chocolate on top to coat. Keep the coating thin to make them easier to bite.
To store: Keep refrigerated for 1-2 weeks in an airtight container. Must be kept cold since the chocolate will melt. I love these straight from the freezer!
